Blue


Back to Naples.

I was driving along Gordon Drive, one of Naples' most exclusive streets,
in search of a mansion or two visible from the street.  I thought you might like to see one.

But, the wonderful periwinkle blue of this house caught the corner of my eye, so I stopped and
walked back with my camera.  Not a mansion, but very nice.
I could live here.  If I had a gardener.

Such a beautiful and well kept place.

Looks to me like you would need a guide with a machete just to get to the front door. ;-)

Kate said...

I'd describe it as a fairy-tale house. It is absolutely lovely, and I bet that the owners have a gardner or they are young and have good knees!!

Tanya Breese said...

oh my gosh, i absolutely love this place!!!

EG CameraGirl said...

I would need a gardener too! So picturesque!

Roan said...

I could live there without any problem at all. Although I agree, I would need a gardener. Beautiful!

Luis Gomez said...

Very nice Jack. Thank you so much for sharing your memories of visiting DC.

Lowell said...

Naples does have some very beautiful homes. I could live here, too, with or without gardener. But without would mean less golf, so I think I'll stay where I am! :)

Yes, routine stuff.

Susan said...

So neat and tidy and very graceful. That blue really does attract the eye. Charming fences and gate :D)

VP said...

You are probably right about the gardener, but it is a very nice house even without!

TexWisGirl said...

wow! lush and beautiful!

thanks for linking in to good fences!

Sylvia K said...

Lush and beautiful it is and so colorful! Terrific capture for the day as always, Jack! Hope you are gearing up for a great weekend!!

It really is beautiful. It makes me think of Key West but, I guess that really isn't that far away.

What a sweet home and I do love that picket fence wandering through the front yard.

A chocolate box photo of a pretty home and matching garden

William Kendall said...

It's a lovely, pretty house.

Karl Demetz said...

Beautiful photographs, Jack!
I could also live here, I have a gardener... :)

RedPat said...

That would beat any mansion in my book, Jack!

I wasn't surprised that you didn't like the modern addition I showed. ;-))

Halcyon said...

This would also fit in nicely in Key West!

Jeanne said...

Very typical Naples abode and I am sure they have a gardener or two.
Nice shots.

Mama Zen said...

What a cute house!

cieldequimper said...

Not bad...

Nita Davis said...

I agree, I could live there but a gardener would be a must or all those lovely plants would soon turn brown and wither.

nookworm said...

Nice to look at. Well kept.

Taken For Granted said...

This is how I remember the old, historic Florida. Beautiful, well maintained house and gardens in your photo.

Lois said...

It is adorable! I love those doors on the second level.

Looks like a gingerbread house in April. Lovely color. I would need a gardener, too.

Randy said...

Wow, that is a colorful home.

Joan Perry said...

Wow....that looks like a garden magazine cover. Picture perfect!

Kay said...

My goodness, what a show-stopper. I can see why it caught your eye. It almost looks like something out of a fairy tale. Your shots have really done it justice.

biebkriebels said...

It looks like a house in a moviescene, so perfect. They must have a gardener for sure.

Virginia said...

Ihad a look at those mansions Jack, and I would much rather have this cute blue cottage. It's oozing charm!

What beautiful and charming home. Love the gates.

Nathalie Beaumes said...

Oh YES I could live here - but my extra requirement would be sea views. That in my eyes is far more important than the size of the house.

SRQ said...

Charming! If that other structure is a mother-in-law suite, and the property abuts the Gulf, it's perfect! I agree with you about the gardner. Gotta have the right gardner or it's a deal breaker.
